“Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks”, a two-act play written by Richard Alfieri, is a comedy about a formidable retired woman, Lily Harrison, who hires an acerbic dance instructor, Michael Minetti, to give her private dance lessons. What begins as an antagonistic relationship blossoms into an intimate friendship as these two people from very different backgrounds reveal their secrets, fears, and joys while dancing the swing, tango, waltz, foxtrot, cha-cha, and contemporary dance. A comedy with music and dance, the play also addresses the serious issues of ageism and intolerance. The play is directed by Jody Lamonte Powell, and is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
